Dior Homme Review

Dior Homme’s silver box presentation is apt to reflect the metallic tones of orris and the coolness of lavender, which pairing essentially constitute the fragrance.
After a fresh bergamot opening that has a slight waxy facet, the scent gains in floralcy with the appearance of subtle, lily-like accents. Assertive woody ingredients meanwhile, serve as a ‘masculine’ balance: these include vetiver or, more precisely, vetiveryl acetate, which represents vetiver oil freed of its more earthy qualities, as well as the ubiquitous Ambrofix + Iso E Super blend. Though I find the dry cedar initially intrusive, it soon settles into its proper place. Finally, the steely composition reveals its soft side with a gourmand finish of cocoa and vanilla.

Nose: Olivier Polge
House: Dior
Release date: 2005
Notes (per Fragrantica): lavender, sage, bergamot, iris, amber, cacao, cardamom, patchouli, leather, tahitian vetiver.
